I have both the crockpot and the rice cooker going. The crockpot contains 1/2 of a pork loin ($1.25 a pound!!! I got an 11 pound one!) in barbecue sauce for BBQ pork sandwiches tomorrow. The rice cooker has rice with canned chicken, black beans, and salsa, which is for tonight. I just started this about 10-15 minutes ago.
So, LittleSmacks2 comes in with a huge chunk of barely half cooked pork loin on his plate, and says, “Mom, can I have this much?” I explained to him that that was not ready, and was meant for tomorrow. I tell him that the rice in the rice cooker is for tonight, once it’s done in about 20 minutes, and to please put the meat back in the crockpot.
He says, “Ohhhhh, ok”, and vanishes.
Comes back about 5 minutes later with a bowl in hand and says, “Mom, this rice doesn’t taste right. It’s crunchy.”
